Well i drilled most of my holes and mounted the buttons and stuff on the front. Just need to dremel the square holes for the SSR's and heatsinks and figure out where to mount everything on the inside. Then its on to painting and wiring.

It sure is tedious, but once you get going, it happens pretty quick. I like the paint job!

How are you wiring the timer in?

Well i finished all my wiring!!! Now i just need to troubleshoot my problems.

1. Element #1 does not fire. Must be some loose wiring somewhere between the ssr/contactor??

2. Element #2 Contactor is quite considerably louder than the other one. Might be a bad contactor??

Im getting my dads multi-meter tomorrow so i can check continuity throughout my system.


Everything else seemed to be working correctly!

Hey TJ, the build is looking GOOD. Are those the switchcraft plug/receptacles? It looks like you have 4? Where do you have them going/coming from?

Halfway through his planning, he realized he couldn't do a 220V build. He changed gears and built two heatsticks pulling power from two separate circuits.

Soooo, he has two power feeds going into the panel and two lines going out to the kettle/heatsticks.

Hope that helps.

Well i believe that i have 2 faulty contactors... what are the odds? They both get 120 to the input side, both get 120 to the coil. One of them doesnt give power to the output side and one of them is really really loud.
